So the Catholics need a new school…
The Toronto Catholic District School Board opted to expropriate 17 North York townhouses to make way for a new high school in a controversial vote late Thursday. The board voted six-to-four in favour of the decision to expropriate the townhouses near Bayview and Cummer Avenues.
Who do they think they are? Conquistadors?
But Mike Del Grande, the former city councillor and budget chief turned Ward 7 school board trustee, said the homeowners will be paid more than market value for their homes and will have their moving expenses covered as well.
“They’ll be compensated, and then some, for their homes,” he said.
“Obviously, nobody likes to put people out of their homes.”
Well good, as long as the Catholic church is paying for this, and not the taxpayers… not going to hold my breath though.
Added punctuation per request:-)
